2. EV overview
2.1 Electric vehicle system
An electric vehicle operates differently as compared to an internal combustion engine vehicle as it is powered by a battery power pack. The car battery must be charged with electricity before driving it. Driving the car uses up the energy in the battery pack. The car stops when the power reduces to 0% SOC and must be recharged. The charging time depends on the state of charge of battery pack and ambient conditions. Under normal conditions (battery temperature of 30°C), full charging takes up to 9 hours.
The work functions of the car 12V systems in drive/idle and switched off modes are supported by an 12V auxiliary battery and DC-DC converter. The battery pack powers the drive motor. The car brakes are operated by regenerative electric braking with vacuum assisted hydraulic brakes.
Always check available energy for your required travel distance by checking the state of charge (SOC) and also distance to empty. Whenever the charge level goes below 5%, last SOC bar starts blinking, indicating the user to carefully drive in order to reach the destination.
If the charge level drops below 10% SOC, the car will shift to power saving mode, resulting in reduced car performance.
The air-conditioning will be automatically turned OFF. The Revive feature can be enabled if the energy levels drop to below 10% SOC. The battery pack also gets discharged if the car is parked in idle mode for a long time.
Requires special attention:
- Battery performance depends on its temperature. Park your car in a warm garage to optimize driving range.
- Make sure to turn OFF the drive system before exiting the car.
- Engage the parking brake before getting out of the car.
- Do not allow an untrained person to access the EV system. In any event, please acquaint immediate responders about e2o being an electric vehicle.
For preventing damage to Li-ion battery pack:
- Do not expose it to very high temperatures for longer durations.
- Do not use the car battery for any other purposes. Always consult your dealer or manufacturer for help and support.
The car uses a 72-volt battery system. Some of the systems could be extremely hot before or after use. Practice caution and follow the warning labels located at several places in the vehicle. Don't try to access or remove parts/cables/connectors that can cause shock, severe burns or result in serious injury. The 72-volt cables are coloured Orange and cannot be serviced by users. For any maintenance issues, contact your authorised service centre.
In the event of an accident:
- If the car can be driven, move it off the road. Park and turn OFF the drive system.
- Check for any exposed 72-volt cables or parts. You can do so by referring to the diagram showing the voltage layout of the system. Never touch exposed 72-volt cables to avoid possible electric shock.
- In case the battery compartment floor area has been badly affected, stop at a safe location and check the floor area for any possible leak or damage that could cause a fire.
In case of a fire in the EV, evacuate immediately.
Only use ABC, BC or C type of fire extinguishers recommended for electrical fire hazards. If the car has to be towed,do it with recovery vehicle support.If the recommended fire extinguishers are not used, the drive motor may generate electricity and damage the EV components and result in a fire. In case the vehicle cannot be assessed for extent of damage, immediately contact the nearest authorised service centre or customer care executive for support. Do not touch the vehicle. If the body of the vehicle requires repair, the vehicle should be taken to the authorised service center to evaluate the extent of damage and take necessary precautions. Damaged Li-on battery modules could pose safety risks and should not be handled by an untrained technician or repairman.
The car has a sealed Li-ion battery pack. Improper disposal of battery could lead to of severe burns and electrical shock that may result in serious injury or death. It may cause environmental damage. Always dispose battery as per the local regulations.
- The car will not run on a completely discharged battery. Even at low SOC, avoid repeated acceleration resulting in more energy consumption.
- When accelerator pedal is released while driving down a slope, regenerative brakes will provide some energy to charge the battery pack. It simultaneously assists in deceleration and helps to keep the car under control.
- Brake should be applied to slow down or stop the car while driving.
- It is normal for the vehicle to emit some sounds and vibrations while driving.
- Driving in B gear mode in high acceleration will result in more power consumption and reduce your drive range.
a) The drive motor makes some sound during its operation. The sound levels might go up during deceleration of the vehicle.
b) The brake vacuum pump emits some sound while in operation.
c) The contactor makes sound when the vehicle is switched on and authentication is successful.
d) Both the air-conditioner motor and the condenser fan turn ON during the AC cooling operation.
- If the battery temperature is below 0°C or less, the battery pack will not accept charge. It is therefore, advisable to park your car in a warm garage. If the battery temperature is below -20°C, the car will not drive. It is advisable to park the car in a warm garage.
- Performance of the battery will decrease with time and usage. This is normal and does not indicate any defect in the battery pack.
- The battery pack has a specific lifespan. When its charge holding capacity reaches below a specific level, it may require an inspection from authorised service engineers. If required, you may need to replace battery pack.
- It is mandatory that during the process of battery or vehicle/components disposal, the owner should contact the authorised dealer for guidance and information on recycling or proper disposal without causing any environmental pollution.
- While driving, if the charge level drops below 20%, the car will switch to E (economy) mode limiting the drive power. If the charge level drops below 10%, the car will switch to L (limp home) mode with the PWR SAVE cluster display.This will automatically turn off the cabin heater or AC, but the blower will continue to work.
2.4 Types of charging
|Input Supply||Estimated Charge time|
|Normal charging||Use input of 16 Amps 230V supply with proper earthing.||Approximately 9 hours from empty to full at 30°C of battery temperature.|
|Fast charging||Compatible public fast charging stations.||Approximately 1hour 30 minutes from empty to 100% SOC (At 30°C).|

When you finish driving, shift the gear lever to N mode, turn OFF the start switch and apply PARKING BRAKE. If parking area is equipped with a charging facility, you can plug in your car.
2.8 Efficient usage of your car
The driving range of your drive depends on the state of charge, weather, temperature, usage, driving style, geographical topography and the age of the battery power pack.
The estimated drive range at 100% charge of a new battery power pack is approximately 140 kilometers at 30°C of battery power pack temperature based on the standard test conditions. Your actual drive range can vary as the battery power pack ages, and depending on the usage pattern and driving style. Most users experience a drive range between 90 to 140 kilometers under normal driving conditions. On tips to increase the drive range, refer to the "Extending Driving Range" section on page 92.
2.9 Factors influencing the driving range
The drive range depends on some of the factors listed below:
- Vehicle speed
- Vehicle pay load and tyre pressure
- Electrical load from accessories
- Road condition and traffic
To get best drive range
a) Always drive in the 'F' mode.
b) Maintain all tyre pressures to the recommended value.(Refer to the "Tyres" section on page 98).
c) Follow the recommended periodic maintenance schedule.
d) Get the wheel alignment checked at recommended periodic intervals.
e) Precondition your car cabin while vehicle is plugged-in for charge.
2.10 Battery life and performance
Due to battery characteristics, the performance of the e2o's battery power pack will decrease with usage, surrounding environment, actual usage pattern and ageing resulting in a reduced estimated drive range. This is normal and does not indicate a malfunction / defect in the vehicle system or the battery power pack.
The charge holding capacity can also be affected by usage pattern, vehicle storage conditions, battery operation temperature.
It is recommended that you:
- Store your vehicle in a warm location when the ambient temperature is cold or very hot.
- Use normal charging wherever possible.
- Allow overnight charging once in 3 charge cycles. This will ensure optimal battery performance.
2.11 Battery protection mode
The car is equipped with a Battery protection mode that prevents deep discharge of the battery power pack. The conditions for the Battery protection mode being enabled are as follows:
a) Whenever the charge level of the battery power pack falls below 12% SOC and is idle for next 24 hours with the key OFF.
b) Whenever the charge level of the battery power pack goes down to 0% SOC and the car is idle for the next 2 hours with the key turned OFF.

Close the charge port flap till it locks. Roll and keep the charge cable back in the storage area behind the rear seat.
Once in 3days, keep the car for an overnight charge by a normal charging process to ensure that all battery modules in the power pack are charged and balanced. This optimises the drive range and extends the life of the battery pack.
3.4 Charge duration
Time taken for charging can go up to 9 hours from level zero. It takes up to approximately 9 hours for a 100% charge (given the temperature of the battery power pack is 30°C at the time of charging). After charging, the power pack will internally start cell balancing for about 4 hours. This process optimises the battery pack's life and performance.
Charging duration may vary if:
- The battery power pack temperature is above 30°C at the time of charging. It will take more time for a full charge and will not charge if it is more than 45°C.
- The battery power pack temperature is below 0°C, the car will not charge. It is therefore, advisable to keep your car in a warm garage.
- Battery balancing will happen only after a normal full charge and takes about 4 hours.
- There is no indication on cluster while the battery cell balancing is in progress. Allow car to remain on charge for 4 hours post a full charge cycle (indicated by 100% SOC and solid charge light).
3.5 Ideal time to charge
The vehicle can be charged anytime with available charging facility. However, charging the vehicle during a specific time does have its advantages:
- Normally most of requirements for city mobility are during daytime. Charging at night will not interfere with daily travel plans.
- At night the ambient temperature is lower and ideal for charging.
3.6 Intelligent charging system
The vehicle has an Intelligent Energy Management System [IEMS] and Battery management system [BMS] that controls the energy flow from mains to the battery power pack through the on-board charger. This optimises energy consumption while charging the battery pack. If there is a voltage fluctuation or an interruption in the main power supply while charging, the system resumes from the point where it paused charging.

- While fixing key fob cover, ensure that the key release sliding button and spring are in place and properly aligned, or when required the manual key will not release properly.
9. Starting and driving
Check the energy level on SOC bar and digital SOC display. Ensure that there is enough charge for your immediate journey.Eight simple steps to get your car started and ready to drive:
Step1: Turn off the power supply at plug point, remove cable plug from socket.
Step 2: Remove the other end of the cable from the car charge port and close flap.Roll it and keep inside the car.
Step 3: Unlock the door using the remote key fob.
Step 4: Turn on the START switch.
Step 5: Authenticate by placing the KEY FOB in-front of START switch for 2seconds as shown above.
Step 6: Ensure that the seat belts are fastened.
Step 7: Press the brake pedal and press the GEAR LEVER release button to move the gear lever to desired driving position.
Step 8: Release the PARKING BRAKE. The car will start moving at a slow speed due to Creep feature (5 Kmph). Press the ACCELERATOR PEDAL to increase speed. Use your right foot only for operating accelerator and brake pedals.
Step 9: When you require a higher acceleration to overtake other vehicles or for an uphill climb, press BRAKE PEDAL, move GEAR LEVER to BOOST [B] mode. You will get a much higher torque. The maximum speed is 85 kmph. It is possible for you to switch from Forward [F] mode to Boost [B] mode and vice-versa when the car is in motion. However, for optimal driving range, use Forward [F] mode.
Step10: To reverse, make sure that your car is stationary. Press the brake and move GEAR LEVER to REVERSE [R] mode, car will start moving slowly. Press the accelerator gently and drive backward. In this mode, speed is limited to approx. 20 kmph.
Following the steps given above, makes it simple and easy to control your drive and your car. Read section "Extending Driving Range" on page 92 to get the best performance out of your car.
Use the REVERSE CAMERA (if equipped) to assist you while reversing your car. It turns on as soon you select REVERSE mode with the infotainment system turned on.
When the charge level in your battery pack reduces to less than 10% SOC, the car's energy monitoring system puts it on the POWER SAVE mode. This is due to preprogrammed software in your vehicle's Intelligent Energy Management System [IEMS] and the Motor Controller. These components will monitor, as far as possible, that you never get stranded on the road due to insufficient energy in the battery pack. The digital SOC and the SOC bar display available energy and DISTANCE TO EMPTY indicating your driving range from the previous and the present drive. As you drive, the digital SOC and gauge bar will reduce, displaying possible driving range expected from the remaining energy in the battery pack.
If the SOC is low (<10%) while driving, you can activate Revive to use reserve energy. This will release the reserved energy and will help you in reaching your destination or the nearest charging point.
The Revive feature provides 7% SOC equivalent to 10 kilometers at 30°C of battery temperature. Revive should be used in case of an emergency. So, use the feature only when its necessary and plan your drive carefully.
If the authentication attempt is unsuccessful, the cluster will display RESTART message within 60 seconds. Press the start switch again and reposition key fob for authentication.
- Operate the brake pedal and accelerator pedal with your right foot only.
- While driving,if you remove your foot from accelerator pedal without pressing the brake pedal, you will feel partial regenerative braking. This is normal and is attributed to vehicle's regenerative braking that will recharge batteries giving you extra driving range.
- If the START or STOP buttons are turned off, it takes few seconds for LED to turn off. If you want to switch on the car during that time, simply press the START switch again, it does not require authentication again.
Always ensure that the energy level is sufficient for your planned travel distance. Avoid driving below 1% SOC as the vehicle might stop at any point of time. Plug in for charge at first opportunity.
9.4 Hill assist (Creep)
This feature allows you to control your car better on inclined roads, after releasing brake. It gives an added advantage to the user by moving forward or backward based on gear selection while driving on an incline.
The car has energy save feature as the power is turned off by Start switch. The power consumption by the car's electric system is minimized as power to some of the electric components is shutdown. During this, if car is not used for a couple of days, the auxiliary battery voltage will reduce. The car system turn on by IEMS and on board charger will charge the auxiliary battery with charger cooling fan operation. This may result in a sound of the cooling fan, contactor sound and is normal.
9.5 Extending drive range
- Always make sure that you release the parking brake completely before driving your car.
- Always drive car using the right foot only.
- Always drive in Forward [F] mode to get optimum range out of battery. Use B mode when you want to overtake.
- Pre-cool your car cabin remotely by turning on air conditioning while the car is still plugged in for charge.This will ensure that battery will be in 100% charge and the cabin temperature preconditioned.
- Use air conditioning with desired level of cooling settings during drive. This will reduce the energy consumed for cooling.
- By carefully applying gradual brakes, you will ensure that the car batteries will have regenerative charge for that extra range.
If the car is kept idle without use, the vehicle battery energy will have 1% idle discharge per day. Hence it is always advised to charge vehicle battery pack to 100% SOC (overnight charge) before using whenever car is kept idle for many days.
9.6 Electric power steering
The electric power steering system is designed reduce steering effort during drive. The motor in the steering column will assist whenever it senses the driver making an effort on the steering wheel at key ON. When the steering wheel is operated repeatedly or continuously while parking or while driving at low speeds, power assist for steering wheel will be reduced. This is to prevent overheating of the power steering system and protect it from getting damaged. While power assistance is reduced, the steering wheel operation will become harder. When the temperature of the power steering system comes down, power assistance will return to normal.Avoid such repeated steering wheel operations that could cause power steering system to overheat.
If it is overheated, you may hear a 5 second chime sound at key switch ON or during drive along with EV warning lamp and CHK EPS message on cluster.
This indicates that the power steering system is not functioning properly and may need servicing. Have the power steering system checked by a Mahindra authorised service dealer.
In the event of EV warning lamp and CHK EPS message on cluster, the power assist for steering will cease operation. You will, however, have control on the vehicle but a higher steering effort will be required for sharp turns and low speeds.
If the power steering system malfunctions, you may hear 5 seconds chime accompanied by EV warning lamp and CHK EPS message on cluster.Drive carefully and visit authorised Mahindra dealer for support.

The car is provided with tubeless tyres.
10.2 Tyre pressure
Recommended tyre pressure (Cold fill) D+3 is:
Driver (D), D+1 or D+2 is:
10.3 Tyre markingsSize markings:
Continental tyres on the car are marked as-
Any under inflated tyre generates excessive heat that may reduce the life of tyres. Check inflation pressures on all tyres at least once in two weeks before driving. This should be done when tyres are cold.
Low tyre inflation pressure will result in higher rolling resistance and will have a negative effect on the driving range.
Tyres used are with special low rolling resistance and should be replaced with the same type. Using any other type of tyres other than the recommended Continental make will result in reduced driving range. All kind of repair/maintenance should be carried out by authorised service center only. Failure to do so can result in warranty becoming null and void.
Wheel alignment and balancing are important for safety and to optimise driving range and tyre life.
The tyres fitted in the vehicle meet the requirements of BIS and comply with the requirements under the CMVR 1989, as mentioned notification SO 2953E.
10.4 Wheel alignment and balancingCheck your tyres at least once a month
If your tyres are wearing unevenly, for example, the inside shoulder of the tyre is wearing out faster than rest of the tread, or if you detect excessive vibration, get your wheel alignment and balancing checked immediately. These conditions not only effect life of tyres, but adversely affect the functioning of the car.Replacement of tyre is needed when:
- Worn out indicators are seen at three or more places on tyre.
- Cord / fabric can be seen showing through the tyre rubber.
- Tread or sidewall is cracked, cut, or snagged deep enough to show cord or fabric.
- Tyre has a bump, bulge or split.
- Tyre has is damaged, punctured or cut, and can't be repaired because of the size or location of damage.
10.5 Tyre rotation
For uniform tyre wear, rotate tyres periodically as shown below. Purpose of tyre rotation at specified intervals is to get best mileage from all tyres in vehicle. First rotation is most important.When rotating tyres, always use rotation pattern as shown below. Make sure wheel nuts are tightened to specified torque of 70Nm.
While carrying out tyre rotation, check for damaged tyres and wheels. Also get wheel alignment and balancing checked at periodic intervals. After every 10,000 kilometers, tyres rotation must be carried out.
Periodic rotation of tyres will result in uniform tyre wear. It is essential to get wheel alignment checked at service intervals after tyres rotation. After tyres have been rotated, get the tyre pressures adjusted to the recommended value as indicated on the door pillar.
10.6 Tyre inspectionHazards
Objects on the road, such as potholes, pieces of glass, metal, rocks, wood, debris, etc. can damage a tyre.These should be safely avoided if possible. Unavoidable contact with such objects should immediately be followed by a tyre inspection. Always look for bulges, cracks, cuts and abnormal tyre wear, especially on edge of tyre tread, which could be caused by a wrong alignment or under-inflation. If any such damage is found, contact the nearest authorised service centre.
10.7 Changing flat tyre
Follow the 6 simple steps given below to change a flat tyre:
Step 1: Park vehicle on firm, level and non-slippery ground away from the traffic. Shift GEAR LEVER to N (Neutral) mode. Engage the parking brake, turn on the hazard warning lights and turn off the key switch. Empty the car of all passengers before changing a flat tyre.Spare tyre size:
155 / 70 R13
The spare tyre is meant for using as a spare for a short distance only up to the nearest tyre repair shop. It should not be used as a replacement to 165/60/R14 tyre.
Step 2: Remove the wheel spanner from the tool kit and provide a stopper to the wheel parallel to the flat tyre before jacking up for changing the wheel.
The car can roll off jack and seriously injuring anyone underneath if the instructions for changing a tyre are not followed properly. Never get under the vehicle when it is supported by just the jack.
Step 3: If required remove the hubcap by holding cap at the top and tapping it gently. Loosen four-wheel nuts - a ½ turn with wheel spanner. Locate the jack point nearest to the flat tyre.
Step 4: Place the jack under jack point. Turn the end bracket clockwise until top of jack is in contact with the jack point. Make sure jack point tab is resting in jack notch. Use jack rod to raise the vehicle until the flat tyre is just off the ground. Remove wheel nuts and flat tyre. Temporarily place the flat tyre on the ground with the outside surface of the wheel facing up. You could scratch the wheel if it is put face down.
Step 5: Before mounting the spare or repaired tyre, wipe any dirt off the mounting surface of the wheel and the hub with a clean cloth. Wipe hub carefully, as it could be hot from the drive. Fix tyre, put wheel nuts back on finger-tight, then tighten them in a crisscross pattern with the wheel spanner until wheel is firm against the hub.
Step 6: Lower the car to the ground and remove jack. Tighten the wheel nuts securely in crisscross pattern to recommended torque (70nm). Fix the tool kit in the pouch located behind rear seat. Fix the hubcap by placing it in its original position and tapping it gently at center.
After the car tyre is repaired, it should be replaced and spare tyre to be fitted back under the bonnet.

Check the brake fluid level at least once a month. Top it up if the low brake fluid light starts flashing.
Car should be disconnected from the power source before any electric related services are carried out.
|Do not charge the car while washing or cleaning.
Do not use / spray water or liquid inside the car while washing / cleaning.
11.6 Driving do's and don’ts
|Always ensure the right amount of charge for the right distance. Check SOC level on cluster before commencing a journey.
Always wear seat belt while driving.
Maximum payload is 320 kg. Adhere to it for better acceleration, driving range and comfort.
As far as possible, drive in Forward [F] mode to optimise your driving range. Always accelerate moderately.
While driving during night, switch off the headlights while idle at a traffic signal. This will help in conservation of energy and optimise the driving range.
Always maintain recommended tyre pressure for optimising driving range, comfort and tyre life.
|Do not drive when the SOC level is very low. Driving in very low SOC might reduce the life of the battery pack.
Avoid sudden acceleration and hard turns. This will consume more energy and thereby affect the driving range.
Do not use the accelerator pedal to hold car on an incline.
Special attention is required for the situations explained below. Please contact your dealer service person for support.
- Charge light stays on even after the charge cable is removed or it does not turn on when the car is put on charge.
- EV warning light stays on in drive (can be due to temporary faults, check message on cluster & drive carefully).
- Service light stays on while driving.
- IP cluster Light stays on after start up switch is turned off.
- Temperature light turns solid after start up switch is turned on.
- Parking light and low brake fluid light stay on after the parking brake is disengaged and there is adequate brake fluid.
12. Appearance and care
Check the operation of your car exterior lights at least once a week. A burned out bulb creates an unsafe driving condition by reducing your vehicle's visibility, and ability to signal at other road users.
Following is a checklist of all the lights:
- Headlights (low and high beam)
- Parking lights
- Turn signals
- Reverse lights
- Number Plate light
- Brake lights
- All indicator / IP warning lights
- High mount stop lamp
If you find any of the bulbs fused, have them replaced.
Brake light, High mount stop lamp and IP cluster lights are assemblies. In case of a fault, complete assemblies need to be replaced.
- Open the bonnet and engage stay rod.
- Disconnect the harness connector from rear of the bulb.
- Pull the rubber cap out.
- Release the bulb retaining spring and remove bulb.
- Replace the bulb with a new one.
- Install in reverse order of removal. When installing new bulb, ensure that lugs on bulb holder engage correctly in the recesses of housing.
- Install rubber cap correctly in place.
Greasy hands or fingers will cause stains, resulting in dull and inefficient lighting. Do not touch bulbs with bare hands and clean head light lens with a non-fluffy cloth.
The inside of the headlight lens may get clouded immediately after washing your car and does not indicate defect. This moisture condensation inside the headlight lens will disappear gradually as it gets warmed up by the light. Keep the lights switched on for sometime after the car is washed.
Initial inclination of head lamp lo-beam is 1% and load is 55 watts with corresponding HLLD switch
12.2 Turn lights
- Open the bonnet, fix the stay rod to the mounting groove.
- Rotate the bulb holder for front indicator and side indicator. Pull the bulb holder along with the rubber grommet from its seat for head light assembly.
- Rotate the bulb anticlockwise from its holder and remove it.
- Replace the bulb with a new one.
- Install in reverse order of removal.
- Press hatch release, open the rear hatch.
- Remove 2 screws on the REAR LAMP ASSEMBLY and pull it from mounted slot.
- Rotate the bulb holder anticlockwise to remove from assembly.
- Hold the bulb and rotate anticlockwise to remove it from the holder.
- Replace the bulb with a new one.
- Install in reverse order of removal.
12.3 Interior cabin light
- Use a small Phillip screw driver. Push down at groove on the front part of lens to remove the lens and pull the bulb out gently.
- While replacing the bulb, make sure that the contact springs are holding the bulb properly.
- To install cover, hook its rear end in and push it up till it locks with 'click' sound.
12.4 Brake fluid
Check the brake fluid level in the reservoir located under the bonnet once in 2 weeks. Fluid level should be between MIN and MAX marks on the side of the reservoir. If the level is below MIN mark, your brake fluid needs topping up. To fill, press the reservoir cap, turn it anticlockwise to open, fill with DOT-3 brake fluid up to MAX level and close cap. If there is frequent drop in the fluid level, have the car brake system inspected for any leaks or worn out brake pads.
12.5 Tyres inflation
For safe driving, tyres must be in good condition with adequate tread and should be correctly inflated.
Keeping tyres properly inflated provides best the combination of handling, tread life and riding comfort. Under inflated tyres, wear unevenly, adversely affect handling and are more likely to fail due to overheating.
Over inflated tyres can make your ride bumpy or difficult. They are more prone to damage from road hazards and wear unevenly. It is recommended that you check your tyres every week and maintain the correct tyre pressure as suggested in the section on "Tyres" on page 98.
It is recommended to get wheel balancing and alignment done whenever tyre rotation is done.
In addition to proper inflation, get the wheel alignment done at recommended intervals that helps decrease tyre wear and tear. If you observe that the tyre is getting worn unevenly, contact your service centre for an alignment check.
12.6 Windscreen washer tank
Windscreen washer fluid tank is located under the bonnet on left-hand side corner. Check the level of the washer fluid in the tank at least once a month. Top up fluid when necessary. Absence of washer fluid can damage your washer motor. It is advisable to always keep washer fluid topped-up along with an anti-freeze solution.
Use an anti-freeze solution in the windscreen washer reservoir. This will prevent the liquid in the washer unit from freezing during very low temperatures.
There may be damage if the washer motor is operated when the fluid is frozen or there is no fluid in the reservoir, or the nozzle is blocked.
12.7 Wiper blade replacement
Contamination by dust on either windscreen or wiper blades can reduce effectiveness of the front and rear windscreen wipers. If the blades are not wiping properly, it could be time to replace them. To replace wiper blade, press the RETAINING CLIP and pull the blade off the arm. Push the new wiper blade into the arm with a 'click' sound to lock.
12.8 Fuse box
Components in the car are protected from short circuits by fuses. A fuse box containing various fuses with ratings for different operations is located under the bonnet, below the right side close-out cover. It has relays for other functions.
- Open the bonnet, provide prop rod stopper to bonnet.
- Open fuse box cover by pulling it up.
- Identify fuse, amperage, location by referring fuse list on cover.
- Check the fuse, if it is blown, remove fuse using fuse puller (located in glove box) and replace with spare fuse after rectifying the problem.
- Refix the fuse box cover, and close the bonnet with gentle downward push.
Replenish the fuse and refit cover. If any of the car's functions are not working properly or have stopped working, it could be due to a blown fuse or a short circuit. If the fuse gets blown frequently, please get it fixed with the help of authorised service technicians.
Always use fuses of correct rating. Do not use wire or aluminum for a fused circuit. Remember to replenish the fuse box with spare fuses that can be purchased from the authorised service centre.

12.9 Storing your car
If you are not using your car for an extended period or over a week, ensure that it is kept on charge while you are away. The computer controlled on-board charger will keep the power pack charged as and when a discharge takes place while plugged in with mains on. If car is to be stored for an even longer period support it on jack stands or blocks, with tyres off the ground. Support the wiper blade arms with a folded towel or a paper tag so that they do not touch the windshield.
12.10 Interior notes & caution
To remove dirt, vacuum the carpets frequently. Always keep the carpets as dry as possible. Vacuum dirt or dust out of the upholstery frequently. To clean stubborn stains, use a commercially available fabric cleaner. To make sure it does not bleach or stain fabric, test it on a hidden area of the fabric. Make sure the solution does not penetrate into the foam beneath the fabric. Covering seat headrest with a cover will ensure that upholstery is maintained.
Clean inside and outside window surfaces with soap, water or a commercially available glass cleaner. This will remove haze that builds up on the inside of windows. Use a soft cloth or paper towels to clean all glasses and to clean interior plastic surfaces.
If vehicle seat belts get dirty, use a soft brush and a mixture of mild soap and warm water to clean them. Do not use bleach, dye, or solvents as they weaken the belt material. Dirt builds up in the loops of seat belt anchors and can cause belts to retract slowly.
12.11 Exterior notes
Let the seat belts air-dry before using them. Wipe the inside area of the loops with a clean cloth dampened in mild soap and warm water.
Do not use or spray water in the car interiors. Doing so can result in damage(s) to car's electronic components. Always vacuum clean the interiors.
Do not use strong soaps and chemicals for cleaning.
Avoid washing under direct sun light to avoid the surface from getting water spotted.
Do not use glass or plastic cleaner on gauges or display lens covers, it damages & reduces visibility.
Never use benzene or thinner to clean any part.
Daily cleaning and polishing the car helps keeping it in a new condition. Here are few tips on preserving its appearance.
Be careful while purchasing air fresheners as some of them can damage your vehicle interiors.
- Dirt or grit can scratch the body panel, while tree sap and bird droppings can ruin the finish permanently.
- Use anti-static brush for cleaning the car roof panel. Rinse the car body with cold water to remove loose dirt, use mild detergent made for cars for washing.
- Wash car using sponge or soft cloth. Start from top to bottom and rinse frequently.
- Check the car body for tree sap or foreign particles. Clean it immediately to prevent stain marks on the panel.
- After washing, dry it with chamois or a soft towel.
- Use glass cleaner to clean glass.
- Remove wheel covers carefully. Wash and keep on a soft surface to prevent scratches.
- Use a mild detergent and a soft brush to clean wheels.
- Wash the wheels and wheel caps with water.

12.13 Jump starting
The car has an auxiliary battery that should not be used to jump start any other battery in the system. Do not use the car battery to jump start other vehicles.
12.14 Battery pack
The battery pack needs regular balancing and recharging as low usage of car and not keeping it plugged in overnight charge once in 3 days leads to development of unequal states between battery modules in pack. Not plugged in could result in activation of “SAFE MODE” or “CHG FULL” messages and EV warning lamp on instrument cluster despite of higher charge level during drive. Hence it is recommended to plug the car for overnight charging (about 4hours after 100%) once in 3 days to balance battery cell voltages to keep all of them at same level.
12.15 End of life disposal
This electric vehicle uses many electric and electronic parts in its system. Part composition is explained so that it can be recycled after the end of life of the car. It has to be dismantled and disposed of without causing any kind of environmental pollution through accredited agencies.
The car is made out of steel, ABS panels, aluminum, lead, copper, wood, other plastics, glass, rubber and misc. Some of them are reusable while others might pose an environmental hazard and should be disposed of as per local pollution board regulations.
Vehicle owners should contact the local distributor or MEVL for disposal of used parts / materials after the end of its life. Local distributor or MEVL would guide to local accredited agencies for disposal abiding local laws and the pollution control board regulations.
- As the batteries are made of lithium and iron phosphate with solvents as electrolyte which are harmful, and have an adverse impact on the environment, they should be disposed as per local regulations.
- Similarly, ABS and other plastic panels used should be disposed of to accredited agencies for recycling.
- Most of other materials are reusable, components are to be segregated based on composition, as hazardous and nonhazardous, and should be disposed of to accredited recycling agencies.
It is advisable to contact the authorised service centre or MEVL for parts or vehicle disposal.
13. Emergency and user info
13.1 Emergency safety
The safety measures given below are set with the 72V system:
- 72V positive (+) and negative (-) are isolated from the vehicle chassis.
- 72V components are labeled and harnesses are orange colour coded for easy identification to isolate or help protect occupants and emergency responders from any electric shock.
- If key switch led is GREEN then the 72V system is active.
- If the charge indicator on the cluster is blinking, then the 72V system and also the 230VAC supply is active.
- If HVAC is operating, then the 72V system is active.
Press the start switch once to turn off the power to system. The status LED turns off.
Check if vehicle can be driven, if so drive off to road side (by lane),apply parking brake and turn off the key switch.
Do a visual check for any damage to the bottom side of vehicle and request for dealer service support.
In the event of a fire, appraise the first responder in the EV to use AB type extinguisher for dousing fire.
In the event of a rear collision, check extent of damage to on board regular / fast charging ports, contact dealer service person for assistance.
For accident body repair, contact service dealer.
13.2 Battery power pack information
The car has a Li-ion battery having solvents as electrolytes. In case of a fire or high impact accident that damages the battery, the user is advised to walk away from the vehicle, and notify appropriate first responder and appraise fact that vehicle is an EV with 72V DC system. Battery electrolyte is colourless,has sweet odor.Coming in contact with it may irritate skin and eyes.In case of an exposure,use excess water to rinse area of contact and see a doctor immediately. This is highly a flammable substance. Even in case of a small fire, ABC type fire extinguisher should be used for dousing it. Since the battery modules are sealed and small in size, a large leakage of electrolytes is unlikely.
13.3 Recovery and Towing of car (recommended)
During an emergency towing, it is advisable to follow the above illustrated types of towing. The 3rd type of towing should be adopted only in the event of non availability of a recovery vehicle.
The 3 types of vehicle recovery are as follows:
- Flat bed - Broken down vehicle is loaded on to the back of the recovery truck. This is safest and best way of towing.
- Wheel lift - Tow truck pivot arms go below the front tyres and lift them off the ground. The back wheels are on the ground.
- Towing by cable - the broken down vehicle is fixed to a tow hook and towed by another vehicle using a towing cable.
Ensure that key switch is off while recovering the car using the 2nd and 3rd types of recovery methods.
If the car breaks down, push it to the side of road. Take the tow hook from the tool kit. Tow hook mounting threaded holes are provided at front LH side ends of chassis cross member near the bottom grill below the number plate. Fix the hook by turning it into the hole in an anticlockwise direction. Tie one end of the towing rope to the tow hook eye of the broken down vehicle and the other end to the vehicle towing it. While towing, the key should be off, the hand brake released, and towing speed should be limited to limited to less than 20kmph.
- Always turn off the START / STOP switch before towing.
- Always switch on hazard warning of both the vehicles to caution other users of road while towing.
- Do not tow broken down vehicle at more than 20 kmph speed.
- Always maintain a gap of 4 meters between the affected car and the towing vehicle.
- Always tow vehicle without jerks to avoid snapping of towing eyelet.
13.4 Emergency exita) In case of an emergency or central door lock failure, use the rear hatch release located on hatch trim panel by removing the grommet and pulling the release cable.
b) The seat head rest also can be removed and pointed metal bar is used for breaking car glass to exit from car.
13.5 Safety features
The car has many unique features that are designed for safety and reliability.
Steel space frame chassis and side impact beams - A specially developed steel frame chassis with side impact beams is built to cocoon passengers in an inadvertent accident.
Frontal crush zone housing utility basket, reduces effect of impact in any head-on collision.
Energy absorbing bumpers in the car can withstand low magnitude impact and reduce external damage.
- Car does not move if the charge cable is plugged.
- In case you have forgotten to engage the parking brake after turning off key switch and the door is opened, a warning chime gets activated.
- Depending on level of charge, your car is designed to automatically switch to economy mode or power save mode to reach the nearest location.
- Tyres used are tubeless, designed for all weather conditions, provide best driving range and road grip.
